Good with fast forward

The good thing about this one is that each track is a different "how to." I listened to the intros and decided which ones were worthwhile. A lot of the information was very basic, and some down right assumed the listener/reader was an idiot. Fairly entertaining.

A good reference for life

I think this is another audiobook that would be best to have a printed copy of for reference. The great thing is that each of the 100 things has as a source, an expert in that topic. With that information you could seek to go further in depth in that particular topic. So, this would make a great reference for life!

Quite possibly the most boring thing I've ever listened to.

Practical advice

  • Book Rating: 3/5

Just like the title implies, there are things that we do everyday and perhaps there are better ways for doing them. I liked the concise advice for the variety of topics and thought it, although not riveting, it was an interesting listen.
